Evans rules out move for Lee

Steve Evans talks to

Boss Steve Evans has ruled out a move for former Millers striker Alan Lee who was recently released by Championship club Huddersfield Town.

Lee, 34, who starred for the Millers in a highly successful spell between 2000-2003, leaves Huddersfield after almost three years after they secured their Championship status with a final day draw with Barnsley at the weekend.

Lee also netted twice for a Millers Legends side at New York Stadium for Paul Warne’s Testimonial match in a 5-2 victory on Sunday.

That performance sparked rumours of a possible return to the Millers, however Evans today told that the former Aston Villa and Cardiff front-man is not on his list of transfer targets.

“When you are the manager of the Millers having just been promoted to League One, with aspirations of getting into the Championship, then quite rightly the supporters are going to be excited about being linked to a whole host of players,” said Evans.

“Alan Lee's representatives haven't expressed anything about him wanting to come here, he is a legend at this football club but as the manager I have to be honest and admit that it is not something I am looking to pursue.”

Evans, who was running the rule over potential recruits at the weekend, recently tied down utility man Mark Bradley and youngster Mitch Rose to new deals as he looks to put a squad together for an assault on League One next season.
